I'm always looking for new ways to differentiate lessons. Some of my students have a really difficult time backing up their opinions. So rather than frustrate them, I decided to lessen the amount of reasons needed to back up an opinion as a way to differentiate for them. I used these graphic organizers for my student's opinion/persuasive essays on the famous author Kevin Henkes. They worked out well so I plan to use them in the next unit which is just Persuasive.
Making Homework OPTIONAL Is the Way to Go!
